Teachers will benefit from these powerful, tried and tested strategies for get- ting students involved in the study of history.

The book offers useful lesson plans and a selection of valuable resources for teaching history. Its practical tips will help teachers who seek to interest students in history in ways that assist in fulfilling the requirements of a standards-based history curriculum. Author Michael Yell points out that “strategies that get students discussing, thinking and interacting with the content are invaluable for helping them learn and understand that content.”
